BILL NUMBER:S6700

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau to accept an
application for exemption from real property tax from the Calvary Taber-
nacle for a certain parcel of land located in the town of Hempstead

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize the Calvary Tabernacle to file an application for a real
property tax exemption for a portion of the 2009-2010, 2010-2011 and
2011-2012 assessment rolls.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 allows the Calvary Tabernacle to file an application for
exemption from real property taxes for a portion of the 2009-2010,
2010-2011 and 2011-2012 assessment rolls.

Section 2 provides the act take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Calvary Tabernacle was billed taxes on vacant property that it owns
at 253A Fulton Avenue in Hempstead. The property was previously rented
by a store owner who began defaulting on his payments in 2008, and even-
tually abandoned the property in July of 2008. The tenant's breach of
contract left the Calvary Tabernacle owing $70,000 in taxes on property
from which they received no income. This legislation authorizes the
Calvary Tabernacle to submit a retroactive application for a tax
exemption for the time period that it was not receiving rental income.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from  real  property tax from the Calvary
  Tabernacle for a certain parcel of land located in the town  of  Hemp-
  stead

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
the Calvary Tabernacle an application for exemption from  real  property
taxes  pursuant  to  section  420-a  of  the real property tax law for a
portion of the 2009-2010 assessment roll, for a portion of the 2010-2011
assessment roll, and for a portion of the 2011-2012 assessment roll  for
the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 253A Fulton Avenue, Hemp-
stead, otherwise known as: section 34, block 338, lot 6.
  If  accepted,  the  application  shall  be  reviewed as if it had been
received on or before the  taxable  status  date  established  for  such
rolls.
  If  satisfied  that  such  organization would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption  if  such  organization  had  filed  an  application  for
exemption  by  the  appropriate  taxable status date, the assessor, upon
approval of the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemption from  all
taxation  and make appropriate corrections to the subject rolls. If such
exemption is granted and such organization therefore shall have paid any
tax with respect to the subject rolls, the governing body or tax depart-
ment may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those  taxes
paid  and  cancel  any  taxes,  fines,  penalties, interest or tax liens
remaining unpaid.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
